Ben Gibbard celebrated the 20th anniversary of two seminal, platinum-certified indie rock albums from his two bands — "Transatlanticism" from Death Cab for Cutie and "Give Up" from The Postal Service — with a co-headlining tour in front of over 250,000 fans this year.
Due to high demand, the celebration will continue in 2024 with additional performances.
The bands announced that they will be adding 16 new dates to their Give Up & Transatlanticism 20th anniversary tour across North America. The announcement included gigs in Atlanta, Nashville, Tennessee, St. Louis, and Toronto. Slow Pulp, an outstanding indie-rock band, will open for them on select dates. For the show in Alpharetta, you can expect the band to be there
Of course, Benjamin Gibbard does both sets at the Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie gigs. Gibbard performs Give Up, the Postal Service's sole studio album, with Jenny Lewis and Jimmy Tamborello (aka Dntel).
The Postal Service, an indie pop supergroup established by Gibbard with musicians Jimmy Tamborello and Jenny Lewis, released "Give Up" in February 2003 as their debut and only album effort to date. The indietronica album went on to sell 1 million copies and peaked at No. 3 on Billboard's Independent Albums chart after spending 111 weeks on the roster.
Death Cab for Cutie, for their part, perform Transatlanticism. Gibbard, Nick Harmer, Dave Depper, Zac Rae, and Jason McGerr make up the band's lineup.
Death Cab for Cutie's fourth album, "Tranatlanticism," released in October 2003, marked the indie rock band's mainstream breakthrough. The album helped the band obtain a major-label deal with Atlantic Records in 2005, as it earned the group its first appearance on the Billboard 200 chart. Some of its songs have also appeared on the hit adolescent drama "The O.C."
“I know for a fact I will never have a year again like 2003. The Postal Service record came out, Transatlanticism came out,” Gibbard said in a press release. “These two records will be on my tombstone, and I’m totally fine with that. I’ve never had a more creatively inspired year.”
